Former captain of australia Ricky Ponting Believes that the Indian team’s fitness problems and their good record on Gaba will benefit the hosts in the decisive fourth Test in Brisbane.

Indian batsmen showed immense patience and drew the third Test. The fourth and final Test will be played in Brisbane from 15 January. Star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari were injured in the match, who would not be able to play the last Test. Ponting told Cricket.com AU, “Australia’s wicket will be heavier in Brisbane.”

He said, ‘Australia have a great record on Gaba and if Will Pukowski fits, there will be no change in the team. If Will does not play, the same change will happen and Australia’s performance in Sydney was good. “Many of India’s players are injured and they will have to make some changes in the team,” Ponting said.

Australia won 33 matches on Gaba, played 13 draws and lost eight. Ponting said of Pukowski, “This was his first Test and he could not return to the field on the last day.” it’s a matter of concern. He is young and definitely comes if he is in a position to play. I think his playing in Brisbane is questionable. ‘However, Cricket Australia later confirmed Pukowski’s absence.
